Full Moon Update: Powerful New Momentum

The energies that were released this week during our Virgo Full Moon have the potential to create powerful new momentum in your life. The image of the erupting volcano corresponds to the Sabian symbol for the Moon at 17° Virgo. This symbol of eruption represents a powerful infusion of new creative energy, welling up from deep within. It’s a form of recalibration, a release of the past, and a expression of powerful new potential.

Pisces Lunar Update: Following the Light Within

Happy New Moon! Pisces is arguably the most complex of all the zodiac signs. The energies are vast and expansive. They’re also subtle and hard to describe. The light of Pisces flows like water, permeating every aspect of creation. Pisces is the energy of spiritual consciousness. It exists beyond the material world of our five senses. We perceive it intuitively, and through the inner knowing of our hearts. In the vastness of its energies, Pisces helps us expand our hearts. In Pisces we learn to hold love for all of humanity. Here we must also learn to stay strong in our own frequencies of light so we don’t get lost in the sea.

Answers to your questions about Alchemy School

You’re a match for our programs if you’re curious about who you are and your life purpose, and if you’re eager to learn new ways to understand yourself and the world. Alchemy School is all about uncovering the mystery within, and celebrating the adventure of your journey.

Alchemy School is specifically designed for busy people with full lives. Our five retreats and bi-weekly evening circles create a natural rhythm in your life, allowing you to practice and anchor what you’re learning. There is also ample review built into the schedule in case you miss a session. Rather than being an additional commitment, the tools and practices you learn in Alchemy School will create more space and flow in your life. Participants with full lives attest to the way the program creates more  expansion and ease.

Because true learning unfolds from within, the time span of nine months enables you to explore what you learn within the context of your daily life. You have the opportunity to integrate new ideas and new understandings within your unique circumstances, and then bring your questions and insights back to the group. The dialogue and creative support from the group is also a big part of how the learning happens.

This is a holistic program designed to support your life. The most significant homework is your life itself. Over the course of our nine months together you will learn many new tools and new perspectives with which to approach your life circumstances. Each month there are a variety of optional readings, videos and activities for those who are interested to explore more. This isn’t required. The most significant homework is your ability to be present to the mystery of your life itself, and willing to explore new ideas.

The Alchemy School has also been known as a mystery school. The term “Mystery School” comes from the ancient world in places such as Egypt where people gathered to study and learn about the wisdom of the Universe. It is said that Plato and Pythagoras were students in the Egyptian Mystery Schools. Over time these wisdom teachings became hidden in order to preserve them and protect them from those who would use them to abuse power. In our lifetime the teachings have once again become available. The modern day Alchemy School is a place to explore the mysteries of our Universe in order to better understand the mysteries of who we are, where we have come from, and why we are here. The world needs what we have to offer.
